Dear Reader

This is my journey through words
when the screams and fighting
wasn’t enough

I wrote this
when he broke my heart

I wrote this
when I couldn’t pay my bills

I wrote this high as hell

I wrote this
when we had no place to sleep
and nothing to eat

I wrote this
when I couldn’t say
the words out loud

I wrote this
for you
to learn
from my mistakes
and make new ones

And so
this journal
these entries
these moments and poems
should be free
because I can’t sell you my heart

That’s what you’re getting
when you read this book

this book
is also
about the grind

The struggle

There’s no skating in this book
There’s no quick win in this book

Just a sista ready to die for words

Ready to hurt
Ready to starve
Ready to cry
Ready to sacrifice it all
Ready to go broke
Go hungry

Kenya Wright wrote her first novel during her third year at UM Law school. She dropped out a month after the release and never looked back.

Words are power,
and Kenya wants to be the greatest wizard that ever lived.

It’s an audacity to inspire
and teach the healing of love through arousal.

It’s this crazy idea that love
can not only help a reader escape,
but the story can also teach the person
about being human,
while making them laugh,
and hot for more sex.
